Tcharmed is honoured to have donated £2,000 to Stacey Preston’s last wishes. Stacey had been fighting Mitochondrial Disease for many years with unbelievable courage and hope and Tcharmed is proud to have known her and to have been close to her amazing family. Stacey died from this evil disease on 31st July 2105.

Sam Sutton

£1000 donated

Tcharmed was delighted to donate £1,000 towards Samuel’s Wish fund.  Samuel Sutton is a gorgeous, brave young lad who has cerebral palsy.  He is unable to have any use in his left arm and an operation to fix this will cost £60,000.  The National Health is unable to fund this operation so we wish every success to the Sutton family in raising this money.

iPad Donated

Tcharmed are delighted to have been able to donate an ipad to this gorgeous and brave young man. Scott is five years old and has lived with Mitochondrial Disease since birth.

Letter from Paul and Rachel Preston:
We as a family cannot thank the kindness, humanity and emotional support provided and given by Candice & Mel from Tcharmed "Tiana Honey Watson Fund". Special people, special family, in so many ways similar to our own, having already lost such a special daughter, Tiana to Mitochondrial Disease, Complex I of the Mitochondrial Respiratory Chain. As we have lost Kristen to Mitochondrial Disease in 1992 aged 3 months, Complex I & IV of the Mitochondrial Respiratory Chain. We know we will lose Stacey and Kieran at some point, but the support being offered, by Tcharmed, will enable a family trip we could only have dreamt about. Deams do come true, and we have Tcharmed to thank.

A dream trip to Disneyland for Jessica
May 2009: Tcharmed made a donation of £1,500 to the family of little Jessica Cannons who was suffering from cardiomyopathy which led to a severe chronic heart failure. Jesse also suffered a stroke and is confined to a wheelchair. The donation enabled Jesse and her family to visit Disneyland and have a wonderful break for a few days. Jesse is now on the list awaiting a heart transplant operation.

A cheque for the Evalina Children's Metabolic Fund
January 2008: Tcharmed presented a cheque to Guy’s & St Thomas’ Charity for £12,000 to contribute towards the Evelina Children’s Metabolic Fund.
